Abstract
The concept of a receiver technique for high spectral resolution lidars is presented. The optical amplifier placed in front of the detector acts like an active narrow-band interference filter. The wavelength is selected by the tuning element of the amplifier and, therefore, the application to a variety of lidars is possible. The application can be an incoherent Raman lidar as well as short wavelength Doppler lidars with direct detection. The advantages and disadvantages of optical amplifiers as preamplifiers are discussed.
